The beginner surf trip is geared to the individual that is new to surfing or a surfer that can’t consistently stand or ride down the line. The beginner spots we take you to  make for waves that are consistent and easy to ride. Age is not a factor! We can teach anyone to surf from 6 to 60, all you need are good swimming skills and comfort in the water. Our surf camp instructors are very friendly and approachable – they are great at teaching beginners to surf.

Lessons are primarily private – this is the key to improving your sufing skills. This allows us to provide the highest level of fun, safety, and instruction both in the water and the beach. Lessons not offered on travel days.
